hi, and thanks for your comment. i was wondering what exaclly a nerve root block is and why i hadn't been told about it. does this last? or is it a temporary soloution for pain? i've had a disc removed an now waiting (in what seems like forever) to have another removed. i've been told that i'll most definately have arthritis in the future and my back as weak as it is will be weaker after my next surgery. i've been told i'll have great difficulty in future when carrying children as my back simply wont be able to carry the weight, so u'd think they'd b offering me alternatives other than surgery. unless that really is my only option. i'd like to explore other alternatives rather than have surgery, but haven't been told whats out there. so any more info on the nerve root block would be great.
